The Valentines Day Box!

I hope everyone had a good Valentines Day! It was great day for Will!

I decided to let him do an arts and craft project to get ready for Valentines Day. He has been having some trouble in Children's Church with cutting, So I pulled out the new safety scissors I got for him. We (more he) made a box to be left out and checked in the morning. This box was made for Mommy and Daddy to fill for our favorite Valentines. Will!!!

He cut hearts out with my help. Then just cut a ton of little pieces that ended up all over the floor. It was mostly just for practice, but he cut for over an hour! We then used glue to put all the hearts on. (Which I put our names on!)

He got a little "let me do it myself" , So I let him go! I left the room for a few minutes and came back to about half the bottle of glue on the table. A good bit ended up on him too! So off to the bath he went. I then had a lot of cleaning to do. It was all worth it though.

The next morning (Valentines Day) he opened the box to find candy and a color changing Lightning McQueen! (He has been asking for that little car for about a week and a half. He just didn't know that I picked it up about a week before that:) I had seen it and just knew he would like it!)

Or Valentines Day went just as I expected and we had a great stay at home with each other day!


  1. I used to think that those cut out hearts would be one of so many and that they would keep coming for years, but now that my kids are getting older, I so miss those cut out hearts. :) Now they make cards and write letters that are all "grown up" looking, so save those sweet little kid cut out hearts. I'm glad you had a peaceful day together.


  2. Oh, and I almost forgot ... hang in there with using your notebook to study. It will pay off. At the end of the month, look back through the pages and celebrate what you have learned. Would love to hear about what you're discovering :)
